Weekly walking/running roundup

What I’m doing: Not sure yet. Probably tonight's Federal Hill run, at the very least.

Why: I'm tempted to drag myself out of bed and cheer for some friends doing the B&A trail races next weekend. Then again, I'm tentatively scheduled for 24 miles the day before, so I might just phone it in and bring brownies to our next training run. We'll see.

What else I recommend: A lot of people will simply want to recover from last weekends club challenge. For those who don't, there are a couple of pretty distance-heavy options in the RASAC and Seneca Creek runs, along with the first hint of the spring season for shorter races (WRRC prediction run, Get Pumped for Pets, etc -- see links on full list below).

Other options:

Weekday options - ESRC daily runs (Salisbury area), BRRC Group runs at Goucher, Rockville All-Comers Group Fun Run, Walking program in Glen Burnie,
Next Step Hibernation to 5K Training Program, Open track workouts, Monday runs at Cross Street Market, NCR Trail Snails training run, PG Co. early morning runs, Pacemakers morning runs

Saturday - Family nature walk,
Seneca Creek Trail Marathon and 50K, Oak Ridge Park Trail 3M, Greenway Marathon, PG County Saturday runs

Sunday - Family nature walk, B&A Trail Marathon & Half Marathon, HCS Operation Iceberg, Group runs at McDaniel, Get Pumped for Pets 5K/10K, RASAC 2011 20 & 11 Mile Runs, Salisbury Tim Kennard 10 Mile River Run & 5K Run, WRRC 4 Mile Predicted Time Run, BAH3 Hash #1204, PG County Sunday runs

About Exercists
Andrea Siegel, a reporter at The Baltimore Sun, covers mostly crime and courts in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County, as well as legal issues. She wishes she was more physically fit, and, as she's more fond of chocolate than exercise, fitness is a challenge. Her partner on a one-mile-plus daily walk is the family dog, a mixed breed named Moxie, and she exercises at the gym where the D.C. snipers once worked out.
Jerry Jackson has been a photo editor at The Baltimore Sun for 14 years and an avid cyclist for more than 30 years. Inspired by the movie "Breaking Away," he started racing as a teenager in Mississippi when leather "brain baskets" were still the norm. He regularly commutes to work by bike and still enters several mountain bike races a year for fun.

Leeann Adams, a multimedia editor at The Baltimore Sun, also dabbles in content for the mobile website and iPhone app and covers the Ravens via video. She did a triathlon to celebrate her 40th birthday and continues to swim, bike and run -- none of them quickly, though. Her biggest fitness challenge is to balance working, working out, spending time with her husband and being a mom to a 6-year-old boy.

She is currently training (though poorly) for a half marathon and is trying to live a generally healthier lifestyle. She also hates the gym.
